The CRU Hacking Song (With Apologies To George And Ira Gershwin)

(And no…I am not going to leave my day job)




It ain’t necessarily so

It ain’t necessarily so
It ain’t necessarily so
The t’ings dat yo’ li’ble
To read in de IPCC,
It ain’t necessarily so.

Li’l CO2 was small, but oh my !
Li’l CO2 was small, but oh my !
He fought Big Solar Influence
Who lay down an’ dieth !
Li’l CO2 was small, but oh my !

Wadoo, zim bam boddle-oo,
Hoodle ah da wa da,
Scatty wah !
Oh yeah !…

Oh Phil Jones, he lived in de CRU,
Oh Phil Jones, he lived in de CRU,
Fo’ he made his home in
Dat institute’s warming.
Oh Phil Jones, he lived in de CRU.

Li’l Mann was fond of a trend.
Li’l Mann was fond of a trend.
He floated on bristlecones
Till Ol’ Briffa and colleagues,
They saved him, they said, and dat trend.

Wadoo …

Well, it ain’t necessarily so
Well, it ain’t necessarily so
Dey tells all you chillun
De skepticism’s a villun,
But it ain’t necessarily so !

To get with the Science
Don’ bet your emissions!
Live clean ! Don’ have no pollution !
Oh, I takes dat IPCC gospel
Whenever it’s pos’ble,
But wid a grain of salt.

Gavin Schmidt wrote nine hundred blogs,
Gavin Schmidt wrote nine hundred blogs,
But who calls dat writin’
When no reality will give in
To no man with nine hundred blogs ?

I’m preachin’ dis sermon to show,
It ain’t nece-ain’t nece
Ain’t nece-ain’t nece
Ain’t necessarily … so !

    This is a fine mess you’ve got us into (Stanlio a Olio (?)) see

    Amusing but pointless. The AGW bandwagon will roll on regardless. I would not be surprised if Phil Jones gets a knighthood in the British New Year Honours List ? That is what normally happens to long-serving directors of orgnizations like the CRU.

      alleagra – after Archer became a Lord, the British honours system has lost most of its credibility

    Maurizio, you’ve overstepped the line there. You can boogy with il psiconano if you like, but don’t mess with Bess. (Besides, I believe Ira’s widow is still alive, and of a litigious disposition).

      geoff – don’t make me think of posting my own rendition of the song!!! 😎

        Maurizio, don’t you dare. Does your knowledge of English language opera extend to Gilbert and Sullivan? In the Pirates of Penzance can be found this (with only the slightest alteration)
        I’m telling a terrible story
        But it doesn’t diminish my glory
        For I am preventing such slaughters
        Due to the rise of the waters.
        If I hadn’t in elegant diction
        Indulged in a innocent fiction,
        Which is not in the same category as telling
        A regular terrible story.

    There was unfortunately nothing surprising in the leaked e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

    The US National Academy of Sciences – a private, self-perpetuating group of scientists -has used the same tactics and control over the budgets of federal research agencies [NASA, DOE, NSF, etc.] over my five-decade research career and sacrificed the integrity of science to avoid these experimental findings [References are below in my research profile]:

    1. An interstellar cloud did not form the Sun and the Solar System. The Sun itself exploded 5 Gyr (5 x 10^9 years) ago and ejected all of the material that now orbits the Sun.

    2. The Sun is not a ball of Hydrogen (H). The most abundant elements inside the Sun are Fe, O, Ni, Si, S, Mg and Ca – the same elements that comprise almost all of the material in rocky planets and ordinary meteorites.

    3. The surface of the Sun is 91% H (the lightest element) and 9% He (the next lightest element) because mass fractionation in the Sun selectively moves lightweight elements and lightweight isotopes of each element to the solar surface.

    4. H-fusion is not the Sun’s main source of energy. Repulsive interactions between neutrons in the solar core trigger a series of nuclear reactions that generate solar luminosity, solar neutrinos, and solar-wind H (a neutron decay product) in exactly the proportions that are observed coming from the Sun.

    5. Solar neutrinos from H-fusion do not oscillate away, although this fatal flaw in the Standard Model of a Hydrogen-filled Sun was supposedly nullified when One-Hundred and Seventy-Eight (178) scientists coauthored a paper in 2001 claiming that measurements at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory solved the long-standing “Solar Neutrino Puzzle.”

    6. Our stormy Sun, which is officially classified as a variable star, produced the climate changes seen in Earth’s geologic record. Anthropologic CO2 does not control Earth’s climate, but some politicians would use anthropologic CO2 to control Earth’s people.

    The late US President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the dangers of an unholy alliance developing between politics and science in his 17 January 1961 Farewell Address to the Nation:

    “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded” [Eisenhower’s Farewell Address to the Nation, January 17, 1961].

    Readers who are interested in seeing and discussing experimental evidence of neutron repulsion, the greatest known source of nuclear energy, are encouraged to join the group moderated by Kirt Griffin: “Neutron Repulsion: An Alternative Energy.”
